Unihertz CMS - a big picture

As most other smartphones get bigger, a new phone is headed in the opposite direction.


Called Jelly, the tiny 4G smartphone is one of the world's smallest. Seriously, it's itsy-bitsy.




Jelly has a 2.45-inch display, and is about 3.6 inches tall and about 1.7 inches wide. Despite its small size, Jelly works like any other smartphone: It runs a version of Android Nougat, which is only a year old, and is compatible with 4G wireless networks.


Jelly is an update to a tiny phone that launched in 2015 called the Posh Micro, a similar mini-phone that came in bright colors like magenta . But Jelly has more RAM, dual SIM card slots, more battery capacity, and is available in white, black, and sky blue.


Jelly will officially launch on Kickstarter on May 2 and will cost $59, but we got our hands on one a few weeks early. Take a look at this little phone:


Jelly just about fits in the palm of your hand...

...and not much taller than your index finger.


Here it is next to a Samsung Galaxy Note 5. The Note 5 is pretty huge — it's six inches tall and about three inches wide — but it dwarfs the Jelly.


It's laughable next to an honest-to-goodness landline. The corded phone looks like it's made for giants.
